    • Death of Henry Cowles.

      Mr. Henry Cowles died very suddenly of heart failure at the residence of his son, Mr. Nelson Cowles, four and a half miles east of Morning Sun, Monday morning, March 16th, 1903.

      Mr. Cowles was born in Belmont county, Ohio, August 11th, 1831. When about nine years old he came west with his father's family, Reverend Salmon Cowles, and settled at West Point, Iowa. Here he had excellent school advantages and received a liberal education. Later in life he removed to the northwestern portion of the state, to Humboldt county.

      Here in 1870 he was united in marriage to Miss Sarah A. Neal. To them were born five children. The youngest of the family passed away quite early in life, in 1885. Several years ago the family came to Louisa county where he spent the later years of his life. His faithful wife passed to her reward on the 7th of May, 1895. Three daughters and one son still survive him, Mr. Nelson Cowles, Mrs. S. D. Crammond, Mrs. George Leagle and Miss Mary E Cowles, all of whom reside in this vicinity. Mr. Cowles was sincere and deep in his convictions, was transparently honest in his dealings and was a kind and generous neighbor.

      The funeral was at the residence of his son, on Tuesday morning March 17th, at half past ten o'clock and was conducted by S. H. Parvin. The interment was in Elmwood cemetery of this city.
